I was dianosed with Morphea on my face last year, since then it has made its way through to the inside of my mouth causing major dental problems.
I am seeing Prof Van Laar at the James Cook Hospital and I have to say he has been fantastic. He has proscribed me Mycophenolate which has made a vast improvement to the Morphea on my face making it much softer.
The biggest problem that I have is the dental treatment, I have been to the dental hospital at Newcastle and although they showed great interest in the affects of the Morphea they have not actually provided me with any treatment. I have therefore had to go private. I am seeing a Maxillo Facial Surgeon called Mr Postlethwaite who has said that the Morphea has destroyed the gums where it is situated and intends to remove 3 teeth and replace them with implants. I am actually looking forward to the procedure as I have suffered with a lot of pain around this area for 14 months now.
Has anyone had a similar experience?
